9781439276693: Place Names of the Jersey Shore: Why Did They Name it That?

"Place Names of the Jersey Shore - Why did they name it that?" describes the fascinating story of over 300 places located in one of the nation's most visited summer destinations. This edition covers Brigantine Island to Cape May Point, Atlantic City, Ocean City, Sea Isle City and Stone Harbor, Wildwood, Cape May and Delaware Bay communities. The cities, roads, waterways and other places of all areas of Atlantic and Cape May Counties, New Jersey are covered. Readers will learn that the real origin of many names is, often times, quite different from what seems to be the obvious explanation. For example, the Boardwalk is named for Alex Boardman, not the boards you walk on, Longport is named for its founder, not its shape and Stone Harbor honors the Stone family; there's not a stone on the bottom of the harbor there! Historical notes are lavishly distributed among the entries. Personal recollections from the author, a life-long resident of the shore, also accompany many entries. The book, which is thoroughly researched and documented, includes many photos which illustrate the unique nature and history of the shore area. Each entry contains GPS coordinates. "Place Names of the Jersey Shore - Why did they name it that?" makes a great read for visitors to the shore area and residents alike. Anyone who enjoys history, geography, folklore and the origin of names will enjoy this book.
